Shrine Kameido Tenjin Shrine Plum Blossoms

Kameido Tenjin Shrine, founded in 1661, is situated in Tokyo's Koto Ward in the quiet downtown district known as the Shitamachi (traditional area). The shrine is an important part of local life, and if you're lucky enough, you could witness a Japanese wedding ceremony or the blessings of pregnant women and newborns performing there.



Kameido Shrine was created to celebrate Sugawara no Michizane, a renowned politician and scholar and prosperous life serving a number of Japanese emperors. Several years later, after Michizane died, a string of natural disasters devastated Japan.
